How Best to Show Texting in a Film

Sherlock Holmes

I need the huge ridiculous Grandma fonts to be able to read texts in a film, so I appreciate the solutions that make the text nice and big. I could read almost none of the tiny-sized texts in House of Cards, but I did appreciate the looks that Kevin Spacey threw at the camera after he read one.

I want it big, yes I do. However, I’m rooting for something that keeps the focus on the actor and not a phone.

This is going to continue to happen in films and on television. Soon we’ll be trying to read from wearable devices like tiny screens worn on the wrist. What do you think is the best solution?

  1. This was an interesting video. Texting in TV and movies has gotten so common I frankly dont even notice it anymore. It is just part of the experience.

    Thx for sharing.
